Before the end of the summer, the different districts and neighbourhoods of the city will celebrate their patron saint festivities. During September, these celebrations are the preview of the city's great festivity, la Mercè. This is the case of the Horta, Poble Nou and the Gràcia area (including La Salut, Vallcarca and Penitents districts). During October, Les Corts and Sarrià. In November Sant Andreu de Palomar.
All these neighbourhoods dress their streets for the celebration and for a few days they are brimming with activities, music, concerts, popular dinners and games for the young ones. This tradition is much loved by the people of Barcelona, as it allows for more interaction between neighbours and direct participation, all thanks to their pride for belonging to the same neighbourhood.
As during each summer, the city’s museums propose a range of varied and interesting activities. We can choose from the array of themes from the museums, including art, Natural Sciences, Applied arts, history, archaeology…, and we can take part in many different ways: in workshops, clue games, routes and itineraries, dynamic tours… Summer holidays are an ideal time to discover another dimension within the city’s museums, a more leisurely and fun dimension. We can come across more than 200 activities and exhibitions for all ages, as of three years, an ideal alternative for our leisure time spent in the city. Consult theagenda of the BCN Guide

The concerts usually start at half-past five and include an afternoon snack.
